Thinking of a Puerto Rico Elopement?
Weddings are not one-size-fits-all events. Thanks to the increased access to travel, many couples opt out of the traditional weddings, choosing instead to elope to exotic, beautiful places where they can marry without strict timelines, investments, difficult compromises, and long guestlists.
With the ease of travel, American currency, bilingual natives, and a top-notch industry of wedding professionals, Puerto Rico is the perfect Caribbean destination for your elopement or micro-wedding.
Please note, although there are many definitions for elopements, on my business, it describes a wedding day just for the couple (and maybe two witnesses). Anything bigger than that, I consider it a micro-wedding since the dynamics change dramatically when there are guests involved.
Get Married in Puerto Rico
Most couples are OK with just an officiant and a set of rings, but in recent years, couples are increasingly opting for booking several services such as decor, transportation, hair, and make-up, and photography in order to have a mini-wedding just for the two of them, or for the two of them with several guests and witnesses.
After 11 years in the Puerto Rico wedding industry as a local and destination wedding photographer, I've increasingly grown to love elopements as a therapeutical break from big and flashy wedding days. No matter what you have in mind for your Puerto Rico elopement day, I'll be there to help!
Elopement Photography + Consulting by Camille Fontánez
Let's talk about my services and with what I can help you with!
With over eleven years of experience in photographing all kinds of traditional and non-traditional weddings, you'll have gorgeous professional wedding portraits without a big wedding!
15 days after the elopement you'll have a full gallery with all final photos of your day in full resolution format, so you have great memories from your wedding day to share with loved ones.
Albums and print products are also available upon request.
I'll put you in touch with tried-and-true wedding professionals that also specialize in a personalized elopement experience. No matter how simple or elaborate you envision your elopement, I'll help you find:
- The perfect officiant to marry and help with the legal marriage requirements in Puerto Rico.
- An amazing floral designer for a bouquet, flower crowns, or boutonnieres.
- Make-up and hair artists so you look flawless in the Caribbean heat.
- Professional wedding videographers to capture every moment.
- Transportation to and from your elopement location for you and your guests (if any).
- A small wedding planner to help with the little details and make sure everything happens seamlessly so you can take your mind off everything and just enjoy your day.
Each Puerto Rico elopement is unique! This is why after booking your elopement date, we'll go over all the details during a phone, video call, or e-mail consultation.
I'm not a planner for traditional weddings, but because of the simplicity of elopements and the direct impact that every single decision has on my photography output, I usually help couples plan out their elopement day providing them with local tips, vendor connections, guidance on choosing a location, and finally crafting a timeline together.
Now that you know what it is, what is it not?
My assistance in planning your elopement does not replace the professional wedding planner's services, they just overlap when it is an elopement for two. Anything bigger than a party of 4 (the couple + two witnesses) will be better served by hiring a wedding planner, as I can't provide assistance or arrangements for wedding events while I'm photographing and that requires a dedicated team.
Should you need it, within my vendor recommendation I'll be more than happy to recommend a small wedding planner that will be a valuable asset to help you manage everything.
